2007 Saab 9-7X SUV Review and Pictures

The 2007 Saab 9-7X is a five-passenger SUV. The body style is based on the GMC Envoy and Chevy TrailBlazer, with appointments and features to make it look distinctively like a Saab. For example, the ignition switch is in the center console between the two front seats in traditional Saab style.

Other interior upgrades, such as French-seam contrast stitching on the leather appointed seats and a metallic-framed instrument panel that resembles a cockpit, give the 9-7X a much more luxurious feel that you’d find driving a Chevy SUV.

Expect a stiffer ride than you’d experience in an Envoy or TrailBlazer, but you’ll be compensated with a great deal more responsive handling and performance. The 2007 Saab 9-7X SUV is designed with a Saab-tuned sport chassis and automatic all-wheel drive. As expected, it has the Stabilitrak® vehicle stability management system, anti-lock brakes, limited slip rear differential, and a rear air-suspension load leveling system.

You can choose between the 2007 Saab 9-7X 4.2i model, which has a 4.2 Liter 6-cylinder engine and 290 HP, and the 2007 Saab 9-7X 5.3i model with a 5.3 Liter 8-cylinder engine and 300 HP. The 5.3i engine is an Active Fuel Management V8 with 15 city/21 hwy estimated MPG performance.

Saab has included quite an impressive list of amenities as standard features for both of these 2007 Saab 9-7X SUV models. Here is a partial list of what to anticipate:

  • OnStar navigation, diagnostic, and safety systems
  • Head curtain side air bags as well as driver and passenger dual-stage front airbags
  • Rollover sensor that deploys the head-curtain side air bags
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Heated, 8-way power front seats with lumbar
  • 2-position memory for driver seat, mirrors and pedals
  • Power moonroof
  • Heated power outside mirrors with turn signal indicators
  • Toolkit under rear seat
  • Retractable cargo area cover

MSRP for the 2007 9-7X SUV starts at $38,990.
